RIX Industries and Element 1 Corporation Partner to Deploy Hydrogen Generators for Fuel Cell Propulsion Systems

Share

RIX Industries (“RIX”), a leading developer of pneumatic energy technology, announced today that it has licensed proprietary methanol-based M-Series hydrogen generator technology from Element 1 Corp (e1). Under the terms of the license agreement, RIX has been granted rights to manufacture and deploy e1’s M-Series on-board hydrogen generators for use in fuel cell mobility applications, including marine vessels and off-road vehicles such as mining trucks, tractors, and heavy-lift trucks in both North America and Europe.

Governments across the globe are striving to reduce harmful emissions into the air and waterways. Tightening regulations combined with corporate sustainability initiatives are driving a massive migration to non-polluting electric propulsion systems, many of which utilize hydrogen fuel cells. RIX’s history of supporting the maritime industry, including the US Navy, together with e1’s methanol to hydrogen generator offers end-users an opportunity to adopt fuel cell motive solutions and work towards a zero-emissions future.

“RIX Industries has a global reputation for excellence and the addition of e1’s class-leading technology to our portfolio strategically aligns with our brand and our growth strategy,” said Bryan Reid, Chief Sales Officer at RIX. “We are focused on the clean energy future and firmly believe that there is a significant market opportunity that can be effectively addressed by RIX incorporating e1’s M-Series hydrogen generator into power solutions.”

Dr. David Edlund, e1 CEO, said, “e1 is delighted and privileged to be collaborating with RIX. They are a first-class manufacturing partner and a long-time authorized supplier to multiple branches of the U.S. military along with a wide range of commercial and industrial end-users. The on-board hydrogen generation technology being licensed to RIX is unique to e1 and is highly enabling to the mass commercialization of fuel cell systems for a wide variety of transportation-related fuel cell applications. I anticipate our relationship with RIX to broaden substantially over the not too distant future,” concluded Dr. Edlund.

The onboard storage of methanol used by e1’s hydrogen generators requires a fraction of the space on a maritime vessel as compared to compressed hydrogen, enabling a significantly greater range between fueling. This range extension is critical for not only marine vessels but also for heavy and medium-duty fuel cell trucks traveling long distances each day.

ABB: Q3 2020 Results23.10.2020 07:46:00 EESTPress release

“Third quarter revenues in all business areas were still dampened due to the impact of COVID-19, although a strong recovery in China and ongoing cost mitigation efforts supported a strong underlying performance. On the upside, the integration of GEIS and turnaround of Installation Products in Electrification is starting to bear fruit and Motion is performing robustly. Robotics and Industrial Automation, on the other hand, are taking more time to recover,” said Björn Rosengren, CEO of ABB. “We are pushing ahead with the decentralization of the group and the ongoing review of our portfolio, while carrying out our share buyback program as planned. We look forward to presenting further details on our strategic progress at our Capital Markets Day on November 19.” KEY FIGURES CHANGE CHANGE ($ millions, unless otherwise indicated) Q3 2020 Q3 2019 US$ Comparable 9M 2020 9M 2019 US$ Comparable Orders 6,109 6,688 -9% -8% 19,509 21,702 -10% -7% Revenues 6,582 6,892 -4% -4% 18,952 20,910 -9% -7% I
